Product Description

Tackle Tough Compliance Areas: Conditions of Participation, the 2-Midnight Rule, the NOTICE Act, the HINN, Changes in Patient Choice, and Much More!

A good outcome from a Joint Commission survey in 2018 is more critical than ever, especially if you want to continue receiving Medicare payments. Case managers must be constantly aware of the myriad of compliance issues that impact your daily practices. Your compliance is under scrutiny during audits by CMS and the Joint Commission, which are paying special attention to the 2-Midnight Rule, the NOTICE Act, HINNs, The Important Message, and other compliance issues.

How can you juggle all these case management concerns? Join expert speaker Dr. Toni Cesta as she shows you how to identify where you may have compliance gaps – and how to fix those problem areas pronto!

After attending this event, you will understand how to maintain compliance in a variety of areas directly related to utilization management and discharge planning. You’ll learn how to survive Joint Commission and CMS audits that are scrutinizing hospitals’ and case management departments’ compliance with the Conditions of Participation and other regulatory requirements. You’ll walk away with the knowledge and tools you need to ensure that your case management and compliance processes are hard-wired and part of your daily routine!
